This question relates to:
French lesson "Aller à = to suit someone (expressions with aller)"

Bonjour Cameron ! In a professional context, talking for example about a meeting date, you could use: "Est-ce que ça/cela vous convient ?" Do you have a specific context in mind? À bientôt !

I was thinking more between friends in talking about getting together sometime or somewhere. Such as, "I can't make it to your house tomorrow but I can come the day after instead. Will that work for you?" I'm in Côte d'Ivoire and the french is more casual here I think. I have heard, ça peut aller? or just ca va? Just wondering if there is a better way to say it.

Bonjour Cameron ! Yes, in an informal context, you could simply say "Ça (te) va ?", that's perfectly colloquial :)

Would "Ça marche?" work here as well?
